My project is to start an online store, in wich the buyer have the opportunity to design the specific composition of the product. So for that to work i have to get in touch with someone who can design a "self design" function.
here is some more detail about the function i want developed for my webshop:
Step 1. The customer first have to choose one solid design out of 10-20 possible templates (designs).
Step 2. Lets assume that the chosen design is composed buy 11 component (empty slots). (depending on the design chosen in step 1 the amount of components might be higher or lower) This solid design is now shown as a picture along with the 300 possible components (these can be arranger in categories) and 10 different color choises of the solid design.
Step 3 the customer now have to choose color of the solid design and then create one composition off 11 components out of the 300 possible components.
This function have to be easy to maneuver, so that the customer easily can drag/click a chosen component into one of the 11 slots (empty and filled) in the solid design. Have some kind of flash solution in mind but i am open for ideas.
Example: customer choose component number 97 of 300 to be fitted into slot number 3 of 11 in the solid design. (If a slot have a component fitted the newly chosen component will replace earlier fitted component)
In this design phase the current price is calculated based on price of solid design and individual price of each different component.
Step 4. Once all 11 slots are fitted with components and color of the solid design have been chosen the customer have composed the finished product and a buy now option along with the calculated price is available.
Also a shuffle and clear all option will be available at all times so the customer can get a randomized product or clear to start over. The above is more or less the main idea behind the design function.
Further more i following features to be integrated into the webshop: Each customer have the opportunity to create an account in witch they can save earlier designs, creditcards ect. A showroom page for inspiration. A philosophy page in witch we explain philosophy and history of the different components and also the company.
